The highly experienced Murata Yoshiki is one of the leading “kyûsu shokunin” potters in Tokoname. His work is known for its technical and artistic daring, a desire to stand out from the run of the mill. The hammered surface of his teapots is one of the major marks of his work.

The nuanced metallic black of this shibori-dashi was obtained by firing red clay with rice husks a second time, in reduction, at approximately 900°C (1650°F).
Shibori-dashis are specially adapted for slow, relatively cool infusions intended to bring out the umami of gyokuro, kabuse-cha and certain senchas.
